The free agent market for defensemen sucks this year...
Myers and Ehrhoff would be the only guys under contract
Weber and Brennan would be low level RFA who are depth at best.
Pysyk would be our own potential farm solution after the trade.

Leaves us in a really bad place... where our only hope is a trade, where we;d have to give up a quality asset just to get someone to replace Sekera...

I'd much rather give up the quality asset to get Oreilly
You completely nailed it, but from a Colorado perspective, Sekera is who you want. Their 2-5 blows behind Johnson. And I think they'd also ask for Armia, because they need a RW for the future. If I'm the Colorado GM, I'm asking for Armia and Sekera. It's not Buffalo's prized possessions (Grigorenko, Hodgson, Myers) but it's high quality and exactly what the Avs need.

Regier should have submitted the offer sheet already to avoid giving anyone up, but if Colorado asked for Armia and Sekera, I'd trade and figure out the defense next.
